Weather, very British.
and totally appropriate for the First World War trench experience
Guns for the boys
Interspersed with WWI horses
And a lot of water

Another thing that is perfectly normal in our house. Taking an old outgrown t-shirt like this (with too-short, chewed sleeves) :
and converting it (with ample cursing over a sewing machine) into a new, extended sleeve, t-shirt using scraps of blue t-shirt.
Ditto this one which was an adult t-shirt got for free from the local Swap Shop,
now converted to a long-sleeve child's t-shirt:

The other site is here , Historical Fiction for Children and Adults, that I found today on a home ed list. I haven't had much chance to look at the latter, but I suspect at least some of the material is duplicated between the websites.
In addition I've added a web link (again from a home ed list today) to a site that lists historical series. These seem to be all adult books, but may be useful.
One day I will compile our own subject lists of historical/subject fiction we've read. Currently we're venturing into the realms of World War I and fiction has been a little difficult to track down. Will keep you posted.
